I think a lot of those Dear Abby's are fake, but then again, I may be overestimating the general public.

She just couldn't stand to see all those gifts go away!

Rather sleazy, eh?
Something I've wondered about: when same sex marriages become standard (and I hope they will) will there be marriages with two bridezillas?

Yes, Khan. My friends had just such an event a few years ago. Lord, that was a mess. Those two girls were a freaking nightmare for weeks! They are still together, but I have no idea how. Jeez!

Dear Abby, Dear Abby,
Well I never thought
That me and my girlfriend
Would ever get caught

We were sittin' in the backseat
Just shootin' the breeze
With her hair up in curlers
And her pants to her knees

Signed, Just Married

John Prine

I think there should be a ruling that divorce should be illegal (god hates divorce); all divorced folks should be required to go back to their original spouses.

Newt Gingrich (3 wives)
Bob Dole (2 wives)
Rush Limbaugh (3 wives)
Teddy Kennedy (2 wives)
My EX (his 2nd her 3rd)
...

Yeah, how quaint. Next thing you know, people will want freedom of speech, fair trials, and $hit like that. This could get out of hand...
